Understanding Veterans’ Life Insurance
Veterans’ Life Insurance premiums do not differ based on gender or smoker status, rather they are strictly based on age. Additionally, policyholders are given the choice in how they want to pay their premium: monthly, quarterly, semiannually, or annually.
Some premiums do not have membership fees and there is no waiting period between the time in which the policyholder’s coverage begins and when a claim is able to be paid.
Typically, rates for Life Insurance are affordable for younger veterans. Since the only determining factor for premiums is age, these costs can become expensive as you continue to age. Additionally, if premiums are only term life insurance, they do not accumulate a cash value.
